White House defends Pence's use of private email while governor

Vice President Mike Pence dances with his wife Karen at the Liberty Ball Friday Jan. 20 2017 in Washington

INDIANAPOLIS -The Associated Press is being criticized for listing the email address of Vice President Mike Pence's wife's in a story about Pence's frequent resistance to public records requests while Indiana's governor.

"The publication of Mrs. Pence's active private email address to millions of your readers has subjected her to vitriolic and malicious emails and raised security concerns".

Vice President Pence on Saturday called on the Associated Press to apologize for publishing his wife's private email address in a story earlier this week.

Mike Pence has sent the AP a sternly worded letter after the wire service published the current personal email address of Karen Pence, reports Politico.

A rep for the AP responds that it "removed the email address from subsequent stories after learning Mrs. Pence still used the account".

"The AP stands by its story, which addresses important transparency issues", she added.

Hill also alerted Pence to an Federal Bureau of Investigation terror assessment in another exchange included in 30 pages of emails provided to CNN by Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb's office in response to a public records request.

On Friday, the AP reported the Pences used their AOL accounts to conduct official business since at least 2013.


'Government emails involving his state and personal accounts are being archived by the state consistent with IN law, and are being managed according to Indiana's Access to Public Records Act'.

Lotter said Pence "maintained a state email account and a personal email account" like previous governors in the state.

Pence's representatives released a statement following the disclosure.

He also noted the stark contrast between his email to that of the predicament of Hilary Clinton in which she had "mishandled classified information" as well as "destroyed" the email that were requested by members of Congress and other government institutions.

'As Governor, Mr Pence fully complied with IN law regarding email use and retention.

'We have fully complied with all of Indiana's laws'.

The topic of private email servers was a heated and controversial political topic during the 2016 presidential campaign, with many maligning Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for her State Department dealings over a private email account.

Pence spokesman Marc Lotter told the Indianapolis Star that any comparisons between Pence and Clinton was "absurd". That was the account that was disclosed Thursday.
